Hi,

I think it would be enlightening for WHAT-WG members to explain future
developments in autodiscovery on

http://feedautodiscovery.org/

taking care to delineate future capabilities and standards from the
stuff that works right now. It might also help to give the WHAT-WG
elevator pitch. It's a wiki, so edit and link as you like.

Well, it would be much less useful, since IETF documents don't have
pictures or unicode or translations.

With encouragement from the RSS-Public mailing list, I've taken their
Creative-Commons spec and pubilshed it here:

http://feedautodiscovery.org/

I removed the RFC 2119 reference, since I was told they were giving
"advice", and using SHOULD for it, which doesn't jive with the 2119
definitions.

Now, the Atom list should jump in and update the document so it does
justice to both formats. It's a wiki... just go for it.

(the CSS is a little rough still... I'll work on prettying it up)
